At the end of March, members of the University of Manchester Research Software Engineering (RSE) team ran a Carpentries-style training course for researchers in the environmental sciences. The training took place over five days and introduced the researchers to intermediate-level software development skills and practices.
SSI Fellow Luke Abraham, National Centre for Atmospheric Science and University of Cambridge, speaks about the benefits of in-person training and his experience organising a course on the United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosols model in December 2022 at the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry’s Computer Lab.
Researchers and RSEs can access many excellent training programmes, like the Code Refineries and various Carpentries. However, the demand for experienced engineers is rapidly growing, and it is hard to keep up with training as many RSEs as needed.
Our spring Research Software Camp: Next steps in coding focused on improving computational and training skills and exploring existing resources out there. The Camp was held from 16th to 27th May 2022.
Are you thinking of attending a foundational research software course? Have you recently attended one but don’t know where to go from there? Are you an intermediate research software developer and would like to further develop your skills or train others?
We’re thrilled to present our brand new monthly training round up. This month, we bring you opportunities of lessons in the Carpentries Incubator, workshops organised by the SSI staff, partners and collaborators, and updates from our Training Lead, Aleksandra Nenadic.
The SSI is running The Carpentries Instructor Training online over four mornings from 15-18 June 2021.
Being an ally is a learned skill that everyone can practise by self-education and structured training. An Ally Skills Workshop allows its participants to understand various concepts, explore social scenarios and practise simple everyday techniques they can use to make their workplace and communities more inclusive.
The N8 Centre of Excellence for Computationally Intensive Research are investigating ways of meeting the growing demand for courses that teach computational and data skills to researchers.
